Injury update

The Ospreys medical team have confirmed the extent of lay-offs facing Lloyd Ashley and Scott Williams after the pair both sustained injuries last weekend.

Ashley injured his AC joint on Friday evening playing for the Ospreys Development team against Scarlets A in Bridgend and is looking at a spell on the sidelines of six to eight weeks.

Williams suffered a hamstring injury during Saturday night’s Liberty Stadium bonus point win over Toyota Cheetahs. The medical team completed their investigations earlier this week and the summer signing has begun his rehab programme, looking at a best case scenario of a similar six to eight week recovery timescale.
